Guagua town sets stricter access to public market

GUAGUA town Mayor Dante Torres has set new guidelines for the operation of the Guagua Public Market as well as rules on who will be able to enter the second district’s biggest public market.

Torres, in a memorandum, said that the markets operating hours will be limited to 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. He added that all people who would buy their needs from the public market would have to present their Home Quarantine Passes.

Only Guagua residents would be allowed inside the public market, except for vendors from other towns who buy items in bulk. These vendors would have to secure permits from their respective mayors. People with bank transactions as well as those who are buying medicines would be allowed into the market complex only upon proof of bank transactions and valid prescriptions, respectively.

Early this week, Torres signed Executive No. 20 ordering prohibition on the sale, consumption and distribution of intoxicating beverages in the town while the enhanced community quarantine is in effect.

Torres said the move is to ensure that peace and order, as well as proper social distancing is observed.

The mayor had also deputized the local police and village officials to take into custody anyone who would violate the executive order.
